Capel Seion – Cribinau


A beautifully renovated chapel by sandy Aberffraw beach

Cribinau is a ground floor apartment for eight within a handsome refurbishment of a fine old Chapel perched right by the water’s edge in Aberffraw. Now a monument to contemporary design and a clever mix of old and new.

One of a tempting trio of retreats within the Chapel and you may have one floor at Cribinau, but you get masses of space.

Walk, cycle, explore the beaches and dunes at Aberffraw, or just stay put and be serene. Spread out with books, board games and a TV in the large sitting room with a plump L-shaped sofa and a wonderful pulpit framing the room. Cooks will be happy banging about in a snazzy kitchen with sleek cupboards, serious pans. And there’s a proper table big enough for long lazy meals with the clan.

No arguments here over who gets which bedroom because they are all bright with soothing colours and white cotton on firm mattresses. Two king rooms have sparkling en-suite bathrooms with tiled floors and lots of thick towels. Two twin rooms have the loveliest linen, cool design, quirky art or pieces of it – both share a gleaming bathroom.

Enjoy a barbecue on your own section of terrace and soak up the local scene. Bird watchers will root themselves on the terrace overlooking the estuary (don’t forget to bring binoculars). Walkers can set off from the door and be on the coastal path in a minute, and there are dozens of wild beaches to discover. Follow a maze of criss-cross lanes humming with birds and packed with history. Cribinau is also a great launch pad for Anglesey’s dark skies and beaches.

Not only are you in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty but you are in royal company here. Aberffraw was once the seat of the Welsh Princes. Llys Llewelyn hosts the royal location and is now a tempting tea room. Walk off the cream scones and bara brith with a jaunt over to Porth Cwyfan to see the church in the sea. Four miles should be ample payback for a scone or two.

You are only a short hop from vibrant Rhosneigr which is great for kite surfing, boarding or just more eating!
